About

Beautiful and really rare Charlotte Perriand sideboard edited by Steph Simon. This piece is made out of mahogany and comes with four drawers and two laminate sliding doors in black and white. The sideboard is in very good original condition with patina, reworked by certified restorers and comes from Casando, Mauritania in Africa. Developing groundbreaking designs she started out working with steel, turning to her prominent rustic wooden drafts in a free form (Form libre) and arriving at a Japanese influenced style after 1940 inspired by her stay in Japan in that year. She early on met Le Corbusier and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret with whom she would collaborate closely throughout her life, as she did with Jean Prouvé.

About the Designer

Charlotte Perriand

A pioneer of modernism in France, Charlotte Perriand was one of the most influential figures in 20th-century design and architecture. In her long career, Perriand’s aesthetic grammar constantly evolved, moving from the tubular steel furniture of the “Machine Age” to a lyrical naturalism.Perriand’s studies at the Ecole de L'Union Centrale de Arts Decoratifs left her enthralled by Le Corbusier and his vision of a new, rational architecture. In 1924, she joined his studio to design furniture along with Pierre Jeanneret, Corbu’s partner and cousin. Together, they devised some of the finest examples of early modernist furniture, including two icons of the era: the B306 chaise with its swooping frame and hide upholstery; and the chunky, steel-framed Grand Confort club chair. Collaborative design produced another Perriand triumph: in the early 1950s, she and Jean Prouvé were engaged to produce desks, worktables and bookcases for the University of Paris. The bookcases — slim pine shelves with brightly painted aluminum dividers — are minimalist masterpieces.By the end of that decade, Perriand’s aesthetic had changed completely from the earliest days of her career. She produced a series of furniture in ebonized wood: chairs with gentle S-curve legs, front and back; tables with elliptical tops. In the mid-1960s, she adopted an almost rustic look, designing simple chairs with dowel-cut frames and rush seats. Yet everything in Perriand’s oeuvre is beautiful, whether it’s the centerpiece of a décor or an accent. Charlotte Perriand’s work is in every great design collection, public and private. Works on these pages will show you why.
